See if it's ready. This holiday season. Oh that looks perfect! That slice of pecan pie comes with a heartbreaking backstory.One-third of the nation's pecans are typically grown in southern Georgia but now the orchards look like this, destroyed when Hurricane Michael hit in October. I knew it's gonna be rough. Third generation grow of Miley Adams. Among the farmers in the region who collectively lost more than seven hundred forty thousand trees. 50% of the nuts about to be harvested gone, a hundred million dollar loss. And what happened when the winds came through?

Just like a parachute, just caught it and it just crumpled them over. It's been a double-whammy. President Trump's tariffs jacked up the export price of pecans by 40 percent, most other countries unwilling to pay the price. Here in Georgia it'll take seven years before new trees begin producing. Still farmers say there's a reason to give thanks. And I appreciate the freedoms we have and the love of this country. And just the people of this country, we are blessed beyond measure. And you're saying that in this holiday season with this disaster? Absolutely.
